Or the rather lames sounding Avengers Assemble, as it's known in the UK.

Anyway, saw it last night. It was ace.

I'll say nothing, except that Mark Ruffalo was ace as Banner / Hulk.

Does it have Whedon's (and my) favourite trope of having the whole team walk towards the camera in slowmotion?

This was the best superhero movie of all time. By far. No contest.

I'm going to see it tomorrow night, so excited after hearing how good it is from everyone who's seen it.

Well I don't know if you need to watch them to get the movie, but I can tell you that you should regardless, they're both good movies in their own right. And there are probably references to them if nothing else.

What I want to know is why the hell they're waiting this long to show the U.S the film. It's an American made movie and Marvel is American...

They both introduce major elements of the movie (Loki and the Cosmic Cube, respectively), so you might want to check them out.

Yeah, I'd say you're missing out by not watching them anyway as they're both pretty good fun in their own right. You could make sense of the Avengers without them, but I'd suggest checking out Thor if nothing else, just to get a sense of where Loki's coming from and his relationship with Thor.

Kai, how did you find the various characters?

Hulk was the best part of the film. Black Widow was out of her depth but she still kicked ass. Joss Whedon really knows how to handle an ensemble. The cast was very evenly balanced.

That was partly what I was worried about. Glad to know that they are well balanced.

I re-watched the two Iron Man films in anticipation for this. Gonna re-watch Cap, Thor and Hulk between now and May 4 when it comes out in the U.S.

So anyone disagree with my - admittedly rather brief - character summary? I do need to give Black Widow a touch more credit as well - I saw the film a second time yesterday,

I'll have to see it again at some point. 3D makes a mess of fast action scenes.

No, not really. Logically speaking, it's the same release date whether or not I found out that it came out early in other countries. And hearing about how good it is reassures me for when I go see it.

Just saw Thor, and was thoroughly underwhelmed. I liked it when he took his shirt off, when he ate food and when Natalie Portman was embarassed. That's it. The fights and special effects where very unimpressive.

Yeah, not sure why everyone raved about Thor. It's the least entertaining of the Avengers series.

It was still better than Incredible Hulk.

As far as production value, script, etc, then yeah. Thor was definitely the hardest sell, and you can tell they had to put a lot of focus on simply making that world and those characters not a laughing stock. It worked, but the film just fell flat a bit because so much time had to go into establishing the basic plot points.

Hulk was more entertaining. The final action scene in Incredible Hulk is the best action scene in the series (apart from all the stuff in Avengers obviously).
